Lots of Broken Dishes

I didn't realised I had been away from Blog Land for so long. I visited regularly but didn't blog as I didn't sew much and had nothing of interest to show.

I was busy with pleasant and unpleasant appointments, visited my dear friend Pink (and ended up sleeping over; what fun we had!!), celebrated my first born's birthday and this weekend, it is our wedding anniversary. I am also learning (re-learning?) how to knit. lol

On the sewing front, the 40 Broken Dish Blocks were done in this fabric ...

and 40 more in this fabric.

That's 80 Broken Dish Blocks. I am not calculating how many HSTs were involved in these blocks because each had to be trimmed!  :^{

I will mailed these blocks to Barb (Fun with Barb) on Monday.

This past week, I whipped up the Peace and Plenty block for my RSC2016 quilt. I really like this one.

I got the rest of the blocks out to see where I was since I haven't seen it in a very long time.  Yep, I like it.

Last night, before I realise what was happening, ( I was listening to an audio book, one of Agatha Christie's mysteries. I still love her books.) the RSC2016 looked like this;

Well, no point in putting this one back in the box, right? I'll be finishing this project today as I might have a few more hours of sewing time. I think another yellow block is needed and one in  ...  ??  ... another colour! :^D
(Sorry Angela for jumping the gun but I took advantage of the fact that I had time to sew yesterday.  :^D )

I haven't done the Westering Women blocks of August AND July. Like I said, not much was happening here lately. Although I did put together a few gift bags. In my next post, I promise to show pictures. (Mental note; take picture of bags.)

If you are wondering about my OMG challenge, I'll simply say it won't be done this month. Here's where I'm at.

No sewing done on it yet. I changed my mind more times in one day than there is hours in it. I finally started to cut the fabric so I must have settled on something.
I'll show you more in a future post. Promise.

Today, I am with Sarah because I want a "Whoop! Whoop!" for breaking all those dishes, lol.

I will visit also Angie at A Quilting Reader's Garden for the fun of seeing WIPs being done.

On Saturday, you can find me at Angela's place for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge.

Until next time ...

  6. Oh, that Peace and Plenty quilt is going to be fabulous!!! You’ve done a great job!! We’ve missed you!

  7. Hi Chantal: I like that Piece and Plenty block as well. It looks to me like you got lots and lots done.

  8. Those broken dishes are wonderful but how do you have the patience to do them? I have to have quick and easy blocks! Maybe someday I will try a block with lots of pieces but not anytime too soon! Keep up the good work!

  9. The Peace and Plenty blocks are beautiful in your rainbow of colors! Looking forward to seeing how it all turns out. Your piles of Broken Dishes amazed me! I don't know if I could face all that trimming. Well done!

  10. Your Peace and Plenty blocks are charming together. I love the little twinkle stars. Can't wait to see how you finish it.

  14. LOL - we were working on the same block although you made a lot more. I only made 45. So that's 182 HSTs. Love all your blocks, but especially the RSC2016 challenge. Thanks for linking to WIPs Be Gone.

  15. My word! What a lot of dishes to break for the swap! That must be a big swap! I hope you get as many beautiful blocks back as you have made. I love all those Peace and Plenty blocks; that's fast becoming a wonderful quilt!

  16. that's a heap of blocks and trimming to do!

  17. Wow! That's a lot of broken dishes!
    I really love your Peace and Plenty blocks. The quilt is going to be gorgeous! (And it looks like I'll be copying you again next year just like I did this year! *grin*)

  18. Well done with all those broken dishes! xx
